Charging System Service and Repair

Your vehicle uses a lot of electricity. From starting the engine to squirting washer fluid onto the windshield, your vehicle requires a steady flow of energy.  The charging system is in charge of this very important task. It consists of the alternator, battery, electrical control module, and the wiring network.

 

The alternator acts as the power plant. As your vehicle’s engine runs, the alternator takes that mechanical energy and turns it into electrical energy. A faulty alternator would fail to charge up the battery, which would result in your vehicle not starting. While driving, a lack of electricity would cause your vehicle’s electrical systems and features to become inoperable and eventually immobilize your vehicle.
